I am a recent graduate from Fordham University’s Master of Quantitative Finance. I have three years of total experience developing production software in Python, C++, C# and VBA within major financial institutions including Wells Fargo, State Street and Guggenheim Partners.

I have developed six production applications, two libraries and over 40 scripts in Python, C++, C# and VBA at major financial institutions including Wells Fargo, State Street and Guggenheim Partners as a Quantitative Developer, Data Engineer and Operational Risk Developer.

I am very good at coming up with analogies to explain complicated concepts in computer programming. I am always “on call” and responsive to any questions you may have.

At State Street as a Quantitative Developer I created an application titled “DataManager” that generated and disseminated customized reports for hedge fund clients. I additionally created a library titled “XMLWorkbookGenerator” (https://github.com/BRutan/XMLWorkbookGenerator) to encapsulate the complicated OpenXML library to quickly generate Excel workbooks. At Guggenheim Partners I created C# ASP.net micro service APIs to feed data into PowerBI reports.

At State Street I maintained and improved the centralized exotic derivatives pricing application (titled “RAVEN”) written in C++. I completed Baruch College’s “C++ Programming for Financial Engineering” and “Advanced C++ with Applications” certificates. These courses included full coverage of the STL, Boost and standard library in C++ <= version 11 and provided project experience using rarely taught concepts such as multi-threading. I additionally completed “C++ for Finance” and “Advanced C++ for Finance” courses to fulfill the Fordham Master’s of Quantitative Finance degree, both with a grade of A, and overall GPA of 3.78.

I am fully versed in the following machine-learning python libraries: Scikit learn, Scipy, Matplotlib, Pandas, Numpy and PyTorch.

At State Street as a Quantitative Developer I authored and improved over 40 scripts written in VBA. This included an Excel workbook titled “CurrencyHolidays” that fed and updated swap derivative accrual holidays from a subscribed data feed into a Microsoft Access database. The improved scripts were across ten different Excel workbooks used in pricing exotic derivatives trades, such as a convexity adjustment filter, foreign exchange option pricer and interest rate swap pricer.

Knowledgeable and patient teacher

With no experience in python , I learned the basic types in python and the basic concept of PCA for machine learning. I look forward to our upcoming sessions as I continue my machine learning course:
